A few SWELL savages “followed the Fish” to LA Hard Summer Festival and Cut Snake basically blew out our eardrums and our minds. The DJ duo has been getting after it for over 10 years, since Paul & Leigh bought a mixer to pass the times during down days on the professional surf tour.

Since hooking up with Destructo, the Cut Snake boys are on a tear through the EDM tour,  rocking out in these SWELL summer styles.
